Hellas Gold S.A. is the first mining company to deploy simulation-based training from Immersive Technologies in Greece, marking the 47th country where Immersive Technologies’ workforce training systems are deployed. Immersive Technologies is known for providing rapid return on investment with a proven formula that combines ‘People + Process + Technology’.

Olympias mine, located in the Halkidiki Peninsula in northern Greece, an underground mine of gold, silver, lead and zinc, has been modernising under the management of Eldorado Gold and its subsidiary, Hellas Gold S.A. This strategy and adoption of new technologies improved production rates and efficiency during 2021. The implementation of Two Immersive Technologies’ IM360-B Advanced Equipment Simulators and blended learning products will improve operator performance and safety and enhance workforce development strategies.

In an effort to develop a highly skilled and dedicated workforce for the underground operation, the company has purchased simulator Conversion Kits for Sandvik underground loader (LHD), underground truck, drill and bolter. In addition, professional services from Immersive Technologies are in place to support the implementation of simulation products.

“It is an exciting time for mining in Greece. We are proud to support this region in delivering the safest and most experienced operators, resulting in a highly productive mine site,” said Johan Stemmet, Regional Vice President – EMEA & CIS at Immersive Technologies.
